Aqualyx is a revolutionary non-surgical body contouring treatment. Fat dissolving injections have been designed to remove stubborn areas of fat which are resistant to diet and exercise changes. Dissolved fat cells will not return or re-develop, therefore this is a permanent procedure as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.

The active substance, deoxycholate causes the break-down of fat cells and the release of fatty acids which are eliminated by the body’s normal metabolic processes. The number of treatments required differ from patient to patient. Generally, 2 to 6 sessions are required, with intervals of 4 to 6 weeks to obtain successful results.

The treatment begins to work immediately. Swelling in the area is a common side effect for the first week or so and should be anticipated. Unfortunately, there is no way to speed this process up but this inflammation actually helps to give the best results, as it causes tissue contraction in the area.

Treatment FAQs

Q.  What is Aqualyx?

AQUALYX is an injectable, hydrous, micro-gelatinous solution, which is biocompatible and biodegradable. It causes the dissolution of fat cells, after which the body then expels the released fatty acids naturally. AQUALYX is a complex containing detergent from the deoxycholate family that has been physically modified in order to reduce the biological half-life and the sugar-based slow-release system results in minimal side effects.

Q.  What are the aftercare procedures?

  • The treated area should not be exposed to direct heat (sauna, sun, etc.) or severe cold.
  • Physical exercise should be avoided for approx. 4 to 5 days.
  • Application of cosmetics to the treated area should be avoided for at least 12 hours.
  • Intake of anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen etc.) should be avoided
  • Adherence to nutritional protocol
  • Compression garments such as “Spanx” may be of assistance post-treatment

Q.  Am I suitable?

This treatment is suitable for anyone that has stubborn areas of fat that despite healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise, are difficult to get rid of. This treatment is used to improve and alter the contours of the body. However, this treatment isn’t intended for weight loss therefore is not suitable for anyone outside of their ideal BMI.

Q.  Treatment, Travelling and Big Events?


Flying can increase the chances of swelling after your treatment, this isn’t a problem and it is still possible to travel around your appointment, but we would recommend using ice to combat any swelling that you experience.

Big Events:

We advise booking far in advance of any big events you have coming up, to allow any swelling to subside and allow us to address any issues or top ups that my need performing to maximise your results. We ask all of our patients who have big events coming up, to get in contact with us before booking so we can best arrange your treatment to happen at the recommended number of weeks before your event.

What our patients really think...

I have been coming to the clinic for over a year and have always been so pleased with my results. The doctors are extremely professional and take time to discuss treatments in detail, making sure to answer any questions or concerns. I have visited other aesthetics clinics in the past and Trikwan are by far the best; I would definitely recommend them.

After hearing about Trikwan from a friend I went along for a treatment and was delighted with the results. Now I’m a regular customer and trust them completely. Your session should start with a relaxed consultation where you will have ample opportunity to ask questions and feel reassured. Then when it’s time for your treatment they make it as painless and comfortable as possible. My most recent trip was in the shadow of the Covid lockdown and I felt very safe, secure and comfortable with the PPI equipment and safety measures.
